Waive Bye Bye to Debt – Jerry Nemorin Lendstreet

It’s no joke – debt can feel like a never-ending tidal wave that causes stress and fear. The thing is, with debt, it’s hard to get ahead and save for all those awesome lifestyle goals that you have. But how do you pay off that debt, especially if you’ve been delinquent?

When you're dealing with debt you've got to have a strategy to get rid of it.

You’ve got 0% balance transfer options from many credit cards, but that requires a good to great credit score (certainly above 700). You’ve also got lenders like SoFi and Lending Club that offer personal loans, but again, you’ve got to have a good credit score and a solid income.

So, where do the rest of us go if we need help?

On This Podcast Episode:

  • We talk to Jerry Nemorian from Lendstreet about a new debt consolidation option
  • We discuss what your credit score doesn’t tell you
  • Learn how to deal with the stress of debt
  • Understand why high-interest debt can feel like a tidal wave
